Schneider combox is coming!
I've decided to upgrade from my old XW configuration tool, because it tends to lock up randomly anywhere from 15 minutes to 30 minutes, and Heaven knows the grief that could ensue if I was updating firmware at the time it locked up.
And, of course, I ordered it from NAWS.
So, I"m looking forward to seeing all the additional information that will be at my fingertips, and I've already downloaded and started reading the manual.
I have a question for those of you that have been using the combox for years now; (please have patience while I catch up!)
I'm looking at the Home screen in the manual, and the numbers are not adding up by a significant margin. I'm assuming they took a screen shot from one of their operating systems to make the manual, so is this large discrepancy also what you see with your own system?
For example, their diagram shows 3590W coming from PV, 41W leaving the battery (@52.5V), 1366W going to loads, and 1703W being sold to the grid. That leaves 562W completely unaccounted for. That's a lot of loss--almost a third of what's being sold to the grid.
When monitoring your own system, do you normally see such a large discrepancy? The last thing I want to do is hook this up to my system, and then start running down the rabbit hole looking for reasons why the numbers don't add up.
Since 41W is leaving the battery, I'm assuming that at the time the snapshot of this diagram was taken, the battery was already charged and in float. Otherwise, the arrow would be pointing toward the battery and not toward "devices."
As always, thanks!
XW6048, 3.4KW PV, Grid-Tied, always tweaking.
